Starters £7.50, mains £11.95.”

Pub

“Probably the best beer around and definitely the best view from any pub in any part of the UK. Literally a pub on the beach and you can see Pistyll quite clearly as you sip your drink. Accessed by beach walk or across the golf club which is part of the Wales Coastal Path. Food is simple excellent and Ty Coch gets very busy in holiday period so get there handy if hungry and grab the best view on the peninsula.”
